Nelson remakes on fleabay, little quieter then the bun. I prefer original and like the blurp of the Nelson can. The gravely is about the same, just configured differently. I had one on a model 19.

I should still have a bigger Nelson I bought for my genset, configured about the same as the Gravely but much quieter. If interested I could send you pictures. Maybe you could use it.

 

I run power equipment all day, every day. Today I ran the backpack blower for 7 1/2 hours, I understand regarding noise.

 

I have a fuel tank.

Blades are cutting great. I did the neighbors yard. Both wheels are doing what they are supposed to but traction sucked. Any moisture and notta. I have a wide 9.5 rims in the basement I think a will get some 23x12-12s

Wider tires lighten your footprint...they will simply float and slip more. Going narrower would aid in adding traction, or stick with the size you have and add weight. Plus a 12-12 will probably extend beyond your cutting width.
